Here is what she had to say about Women’s History Month:
Why is Women’s History Month important to you?
I have lived all over the world and one of the things I have taken away from those experiences is that women empowering women is a powerful thing!
What women do you draw inspiration from?
My inspiration has often come from my mother. She has been a woman of integrity, moral standards, and hardworking. I have also had many strong and independent as well as successful women that I have learned from. I continue to get to know other women who strive to be their best and give their best every day. Until I die, I will learn everything I can from anyone that will share knowledge with me.
What does it mean to be a woman in law?
It is tough to be in my role as I am helping assist victims and their families through their worst experience(s). With that being said, it is also very rewarding to be in a position where I can walk alongside with them and try to provide resources, care and information during their criminal justice journey.
